It was never on plan that my husband and I are going to Manila. It was out of necessity. Since we are planning to get married at that time and we think we can process some papers here in Cebu at the Consul but however due to some circumstances out of our hands we never did. The consul was out of the country, so we decided to go to Manila and go directly to the Embassy of his country.

Going to Manila was my first time of being out of Cebu I mean literally. My whole body and mind is out of Cebu and flew for the first time in my entire life.

The whole experience traveling from Cebu to Manila seeing a whole new world in my eyes was something I will never forget. Will surely go back there for sure.

Being on the plane is another story...
